Matt Higby Resigns - PlanetSide 2 -

A post has appeared on the PlanetSide 2 Reddit from now-former Creative Director Matt Higby indicating that he has left Daybreak Game Studio. Higby claims that he had been considering leaving Daybreak prior to the staff firings earlier this week and said that the timing, given these events, provides the opportunity.

Hey guys -

Working on Planetside 2 has been the absolute highlight of my career, but after 4 years working on the game, it's time for a change. Today was my last day on the Planetside 2 team and at Daybreak games. This is a move I've been considering for a while now, and the reorganization provided the right opportunity for me to exit.

Planetside 2 is in great hands, with terrific people who honestly care about the game and the players. I can't stress this enough, the folks working on every aspect of the game, developers, marketing, community are talented, hard working people who care more than you can imagine - I'm fully confident they're going to do an amazing job on the next leg of the journey.

Finally, I wanted to thank all of you in the Planetside 2 community with whom I've shared the last few years, whether in stream chat, tweets, pms or comments you guys have motivated and inspired me all along. You are an amazing community that I'm looking forward to remaining a member of for a long time.

See you on Auraxis!

Planetside 2

Edit: thanks a ton for all the positive comments, it's been a super emotional week and it really means a lot to me. I want to state the obvious though: making video games is a team sport. If you love Planetside 2, or it is your favorite game, it makes me really really happy and proud... But, "I" didn't make the game. I just was lucky enough to be able to play a role on a TEAM that made the game. A lot of that team is still there, still working their asses off, and they need your support right now.
